Akron-Canton Airport Celebrates Busiest August Ever, 17th consecutive record-breaking month

Share This

Green, OH: Passenger traffic continues to soar at Akron-Canton Airport (CAK). With the addition of Southwest Airlines, the airport marked its busiest August in history with passenger traffic surging 10 percent compared to August 2011. For the month, 169,079 passengers flew in/out of CAK. That figure surpasses our previous best August (2011) by 15,103 and also marks the 17th consecutive monthly record. Year-to-date passenger traffic is up 11 percent compared to the first eight months of 2011.

“Customers are at the center of every decision we make at CAK,” said Rick McQueen, president and CEO. “It is our honor to welcome more and more of them each month. Plus, with the addition of Southwest Airlines at CAK and the extra flights offered by Delta and US Airways, we expect to continue breaking monthly records well into 2013.”

Passenger traffic was up on all airlines serving the airport. AirTran Airways (now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Southwest Airlines) offering nonstop service to Orlando, Tampa, Ft. Myers, Atlanta, New York, and Boston increased 2 percent compared to August 2011 carrying 72,339 total passengers. Southwest Airlines, which started service on August 12, 2012 with nonstop service to Chicago Midway and Denver, carried 10,435 passengers. US Airways, with flights to Charlotte, Philadelphia and Washington D.C. (Reagan), increased by 17 percent. Frontier Airlines flying nonstop to Denver was up 11 percent compared to last year. United with flights to Chicago O’Hare and Delta, flying to Atlanta and Detroit, were up 11 percent and 5 percent respectively.
